This has been so instrumental in keeping us on track. We got this in February and would not have made it through COVID-19 with the tremendous support from this site. Lisa Smith is awesome.
I don't have an HR background, only the required classes for my BS so I'm always researching for information when something comes up in regards to HR. I find that HelpDesk is more beneficial to me than SHRM and the ability to contact Lisa and her team, ask a question, and get almost immediate answers makes them number 1 for me. I trust them to point me in the right direction and clarify anything that I'm not sure about. I think there's always room for improvement and growth in anything so I could probably go through and nitpick the site but that's all it would be, nitpicking, and I have no reason to do that.
As always, you have answered my questions COMPLETELY and THOROUGHLY including links & literature to back up your answers in more detail. I just LOVE you guys.
This has been the most valuable resource to me during this challenging time. In January I took my first HR course with Pryor to learn how to help my husband run our growing business. We had added several self managing benefits and I was the manager. I am a biologist with no prior experience. I subscribed to HelpDesk during the HR course and let it sit for "when I have free time." Well now I am scrambling to learn how to take care of employees and protect us and our business at the same time. I could not have learned what I have by searching and googling for answers. Thank you Lisa for everything I have managed to learn in a short period of time. We appreciate the support and knowledge we will continue to get so we can ride this out!
You are so fast and actually take time to read an entire email!!! One more request, big big request. Stay at your job until I leave mine. Which hopefully be for years to come. 😊
Your website is really great. I appreciate the time you spend compiling all of this info. Thanks. "
I am so grateful for this software. Quick answers to my questions along with links to give me more knowledge on the subjects in questions.
I’m “new” to HR this is my 14th month so I already feel like I don’t know enough but the knowledge and expertise that I receive from Lisa and her amazing team is absolutely immeasurable. The HelpDeskSuites always has the answers I’m looking for and if they don’t they help me find them.
The Help Desk Support and Lisa Smith have been so awesome! It's already paid for it's self with one question answered and believe me I 'm going to have a ton more! Thank you !
I just activated our HelpDesk Deluxe Suite today, and sent an email for guidance on a topic I was unsure about and couldn't find anything pertaining to it in the FAQ. I got a same day response that was helpful and provided additional resources, one day in and so far I'm very pleased!
Such an incredible resource!
Thank you so much for all the great work you guys are doing.
Best investment my company ever made. Super responsive. Great information and working tools on their website. I would HIGHLY recommend signing up for Be Audit Secure
Quick turnaround. Answer was clear and easily understood. Great experience!
I sent a question to the the HelpDesk and got an answer in a few short minutes. This was my first time using it and I am well pleased. This is a great resource to have.
Here I am now. Almost 2 years into this position, and all I can say it’s the best decision I ever made. My supervisor sent me to Pryor seminar where I became aware of ‘Help Desk Suites’. It has honestly been the best, most helpful, resource I’ve come across. I can honestly say our company has really benefited from this tool. We were in major need of updating our company policies which is something the Help Desk made very easy and convenient. I feel like since then we’ve grown as a company where everything seems to be dealt with more organized as to where before, we weren’t sure if we were dealing with situations the right way. Help Desk has helped my company and myself become more confident in decisions making. Personally it has helped me grow as person because whenever I have doubts, help desk has been my go to resource to continue my learning experience in this area where I came in not knowing a single thing. I can continue my learning experience day by day by the constant blog posts they provide on their website, which I find very helpful.
Contacted HelpDesk Suits with a question, and less than hour I got a response. Still looking and "playing" with all the great information that is available. I'm really happy I made the decision to purchase this. It's going to be a GIANT help.
I am so incredibly happy that my employer signed up for this service. Lisa has been so helpful and super responsive to all of my questions. I would HIGHLY recommend this service for any company
I feel like I can't thank HelpDeskSuites and their support staff enough. I am new to my HR position and learn new things every day. They have been so diligent in responding to all of my questions with ample resources to verify their information. I have been able to find a lot of my answers online through their website but the support staff is incredibly helpful especially when I am dealing with time sensitive questions. I would buy HelpDeskSuites just for the diligent support staff. All of the other perks of having HelpDesk are bonuses!
Lisa, I just wanted to write you a note to let you know how much I appreciate you and this platform. Though I am new to HelpDesk Suites, I have been hearing about it for months. I have taken about five HR classes through Fred Pryor and in every class the instructor raved about how good, useful and essential HelpDesk is to HR professionals. I was finally able to convince a member of the executive team to purchase a membership and am super stoked about how much more we’ll be able to accomplish. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the HR Law in the World of COVID webinar and your segment was one of the highlights for me. My family and I have played one of the listening games that you recommended. To my surprise they said, “Mommy let’s play the Yes And game AND they wanted to play the sentence game again!” I’m looking forward to taking advantage of as many tools available and developing my skills and increasing my knowledge in this new world of HR. Thank you! Ebony - Hungry HR Newbie
So many laws to know and HR things to do, I'm grateful for resources like this one!
I absolutely love all of the webinars that are offered. I learn so much from just watching those videos!
Extremely responsive, very helpful and up-to-date information.
I LOVE this software. The contact submission option is my favorite part thus far with so many legal ramifications needing to be considered. They are quick to answer my questions and always provide applicable references to laws and regulations. I think this program would be a valuable and necessary resource to any and all small businesses!
HELPDESK is the BEST tool we have in our company! It never fails to get us the answers we need and FAST! I love the "Ask an Attorney"!! Thank you!!
I'm a new Boss member and do not know how I managed before. Lisa and her team have been so helpful. Lisa never lets on that I have a asked a stupid question, which I am sure I have done. With all the information out there right now regarding COVID-19, it is very helpful to have a place to go to that can sort through that information for you and break it down to where it is understandable. She and her team have made my job and life so much easier. If you not a member, you should be! You are really missing out.
I joined the Boss Calls group this year and Lisa Smith has been invaluable. I am always on the calls and have never participated in one that I did not learn something new or found that there was an update for the topic/item. The library of information always has the documents that I need to send to an employee or to give me details on a ruling that I need. Lisa is always available for an email question or a phone call if necessary. Thank you so much for having this resource. Being in HR with all of the laws, rules and changes, you can never have too many resources that are in compliance and up to date.
I recently attended a payroll law seminar offered through Fred Pryor Seminars. Part of the promotional materials included this service. I am extremely pleased with the materials and the quick response when I submit a question via the "Ask a Question" service. I am conducting audits and am very pleased with the service.
I have really enjoyed Helpdesk. I find what I need and support is very fast to respond. Thanks!
Lisa and her teams support is over the top. I appreciate the rapid responses and accurate information.
Thank you so much for your help!
I thank God every time I use HelpDesk Suite. In my job, I am stand alone HR person with very little experience so I don't have anyone to ask. Now, I use this program and they respond to me so fast with important information that I need to know and use. It has paid for itself within the first 3 days of purchase. I can't recommend it enough.
I couldn't recommend this partnership more. Lisa & the team are always available, and always seem to have an answer that makes sense. When they don't have the answer (rare) they know exactly what direction to point me in. Again, I could not be more satisfied!!! Todd
I love your service! Best money I ever spent!
Started using help desk a few months back. Wish I found it sooner. This site has been a life changer. So much useful information. The Question sections is so helpful. They reply very fast with an answer and reference for the answer. Would recommend to anyone in HR or running there own business.
The first time I came across with this membership program, was at seminar my previous employer sent me to... and I will forever be grateful for that. I definitely proposed to my manager for us to get the membership, after reviewing all the great tools and resources I totally felt a lot more secure and confident as an HR. I just recently joined a new company and before I even started I decided get the membership and pay for it because I knew that it was well worth it, besides it is now mine and only mine... I will now be able to take it with me anywhere I go to :). Thank you very much!
Thank you so much for all the work you have done for the Covid-19. I just recently joined and I am so glad I can ask a question and you answer back quickly even though I know you are getting thousands of questions. Having sample procedures, forms and policies has been outstanding!
I love this site so much! Everytime we come up with an HR issue all I have to do is send an email, and I have the correct answer within a day. No muss, no fuss, and beyond helpful. I can't begin to tell you how much time this has saved me, in addition to making sure I am meeting the latest HR requirements for my state.
I can not express how helpful this has been for me. I am able to get responses extremely fast, personalized with AMAZING customer service!! You guys are a life saver!
The value of Help Desk is very important to me and I look forward to making more time to access what you have to offer. Thank you!
I had a random question about collections and credit and how to write a letter cancelling credit , Lisa emailed me back almost immediately with some helpful links. They have helped anytime I have asked.
Help Desk is always there for me , how can I not love them!!
Thank you so much! I have had HelpDeskSuites for less than a month and have only begun to tap into its resources. However, I have emailed twice now with questions and the response was quick and friendly. I think this is going to be one of my best investments ever! Great job, HelpDesk!
Since joining HelpDesk a year ago, I have found them to be very helpful. Questions to help get it right the first time save so much time and money. A great resource to have in your pocket!
Had a question about I-9 and E Verify paperwork and how to store the forms? Lisa was back with GREAT information. Thanks for the advice.
I sent my first question in last night and a detailed answer came back in no time. I am so glad to have subscribed to HelpDesk
"Subscribing to BeAuditSecure(.com) was the best thing that I’ve ever done for my company and they’ve helped and supported me countless times in the last year. I wouldn’t hesitate to renew every year. "
I love having the Help Desk staff to bounce ideas off of! thanks for being here =)
I appreciate your help so much! Your answers are thorough and response time is phenomenal!!! THANK YOU!!
My question was answered promptly and thoroughly! This has been a huge help! Thank you so much!
The service that HelpDesk Support provides is wonderful! Thank you!
This is such a wonderful product/program etc. We have found it to be an HR persons dream for research and information.
The level of knowledge, experience, personal responses, and valid guidance is of the highest order! As an executive director of a small nonprofit wearing many "hats this service has been invaluable at assisting me with working through the many and varied HR, Labor, and legal forests. Thank you!
There is nothing 5 stars 10 stars 1000 stars can express how grateful we are . Being a company of such number of employees finding resources is hard, and you are always there, available every time I need you. I commend your efforts now in such a time when we have needed you the most...I will totally not forget your commitment to us now in this difficult times....I will forever support your business as much as it is possible for us.
Always get a quick response! Just love the ease of communication on the site and with the support staff. Has saved me many sleepless nights and hours of research and frustration. THANK YOU!
This service has been invaluable as I work to navigate the many and varied nuances of administering our nonprofit school. The responses are timely and thoughtful. The citations are valid and to the point. Thank you. Rick
I can not express enough the value "be audit secure" and the staff have brought to our company. If you have ever thought of joining this wonderful company, now is the time to invest. Even in this down turn. Money best spent this year. Thank you again for all your support.
Such a wonderful resource. I'm so thankful for all the information contained on this website and so appreciative of the quick and thorough answers to specific questions. Thank you!
I am new to HR and have lots of questions. In the past we had a director of personnel but not a HR department, so this is new to all of us. The weekly tips and the updates are informative, but the specific answers to my questions have helped more than I can say! Lisa and the team are quick to assist and I am most grateful.
It was my first time to ask a question through "have a question." The response was fast, and the information answered my question.
I really appreciate the help and guidance! I was all alone in this new HR world and now I have you. I don’t feel so alone anymore.
I have been a member of Help Desk Suites for a little over a year now. I have been in HR/PR for a little over a year now. I would be totally lost right now if I didn't have Help Desk Suites. If I have more specific questions I have the ability to e-mail Help Desk Suites for an answer or post the question on Facebook in the Compliance Warriors Support Group. The networking, the camaraderie, the amount of information that is EASILY available at my fingertips, and the sense of knowing I am not alone in my HR journey is absolutely priceless. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Lisa Smith has been more that helpful! I have just taken on HR roles and would be lost without her! Thank you Lisa
Thank you for always finding the right form I need when I cannot. Your prompt responses are greatly appreciated.
Was very helpful.
We used compliance help desk to help us make sure how we compensate our adjusters for on call hours is compliant with labor laws. The input and advise from Help Desk staff gave us the guidance we needed to make some changes to our program to make our program so there is no question we are compliant now. It is also more user friendly to both our staff and customers with the changes we implemented. We appreciate having Help Desk to reach out to when questions like this come up.
I emailed a question about sexual harassment and a response was sent to me in less than an hour. It was the answer I was looking for. It helped me completely.
Thank you for answering my question. The answer was what I thought it would be, but we just wanted to make sure. Again it was great to get it from a lawyer.
I just want you to know how thankful I am for you Lisa! I listened to an old coworker last night at dinner. She moved up into a position at her current company where she shares a little HR responsibilities with the owner. I listened to her HR nightmare situations and really a lot of it is the company putting themselves into these positions (seriously, they are a what not to do company). Then she was telling me about outsourcing her HR because no one has time to do the research and no one wants to own the responsibility. I can't tell you enough how really thankful I am for this group. Thank you for giving me a place that I can come and bounce ideas off and get new insights on things. Thank you for giving me peace of mind to know that at the end of the day I have done everything in my power to keep my company HR compliant and out of hot water. I don't think I could say that with the HR company she uses. It made me cringe.
Hi Lisa, Thank you for all you’re doing and the quick responses. I’m new to Help Desk Suite (but also brand new to HR) and this is my first Boss Call but I am VERY pleased with what I’ve seen so far. I’m looking forward to the webinar and am sure it will be full of useful information that me and my employer desperately need right now as we have just had our first positive case in the building. I am the HR department with my employer and my only formal training is a one-semester certification course with a local community college so these resources are proving to be VERY helpful. Thanks again.
I finally finished and published my first employee handbook last week! I do what to say that you were such a big help Lisa Barton Smith! You were able to answer some of my most ridiculous questions and I really appreciate it. ...Bottom line we are out of 2004 with our handbook and into 2019! My intention is to review it at least annually to keep it current.
There is no greater resource for the price!!! Lisa and her team of experts have a wealth of knowledge and insight. Questions about serious issues or 'no-brainers' are answered with clarity and come with resources to confirm the findings. In the world of HR where the changes seem to happen faster than you can keep up with HelpDesk makes it possible to stay on top of your game!
HelpDeskSuites is one of the best investments our company has ever made. Each time I contact the Help Desk with a question, they email me with the answer within a day (usually Lisa herself). What a wonderful resource they are! Considering the issues facing human resources nowadays, I could not afford to be without them!
Thank you Lisa for the prompt response to my question. It was very helpful.
Love the fast answers and the reference with it
Thank you so much. Your service is wonderful!
HelpDesk has been a life-saver for me. I am new to this position and this website has helped me every day.
What a great help HelpDeskSuites.com has been. I've been doing HR for over 30 years, but nothing prepared me for COVID. Every couple of years I go take a class just to see if I'm missing anything. I talked my boss into the expense of Help Desk long before I knew it would be so very valuable. Not only have I learned from their webinars and direct contact (great response by the way), but I have found using the facebook forum to be a great way to get more than one idea. The value is 100 times the cost!
I am very thankful in finding HelpDeskSuites and utilizing all their resources. I belong to a couple other HR organizations and by far HelpDeskSuites surpasses in customer service and answering questions. You all have been very helpful in this time of crisis. Thank you!!
So far so good! I am very excited about this service!
There are so many people who get thrown into an HR position with no knowledge of what to do or where to start. THIS IS WHERE TO START! All of the resources you could dream of are in HelpDesk Suite Deluxe. Lisa, and her team, are an invaluable resource to all of us in this HR community. We would be lost without this product, and this team who keeps it up-to-date and accurate. Thank you for all you do to support us!!
I have been in charge of HR for small companies for over 30 years. Help desk always keeps me up to date with the new legal requirements, especially with California guidelines, often missing from other companies. Often questions asked by others are things I would like to know as well. Boss Calls Has been very helpful in dealing with the Covid mess.
Lisa is so awesome in not only does she respond to my questions in the same day but responds within the hour as on my last incident. Don't find this kind of customer service at too many places and she is very helpful in finding the answers for me.
Lisa is amazing. The investment in Helpdesk is one of the best I've ever made for my business. Lisa has been amazing in this COVID crisis. Answers to my questions are quick and thorough. Thank you!
Lisa @ Help Desk sent me links to answer my questions.
Thank you for the information you sent. I actually do listen to the podcast usually on my way to work… and honestly I love them. I have gain a lot of important information, now I have to figure out how to start implementing all the advice and guidance I find both in the website and the podcast. Our company as a whole has the need to improve in so many areas; that I don’t even know where to start or how to get my team to understand the importance of being Audit Secure.
my experience has been amazing with helpdesk! cant imagine life without 🙂 Lisa has been wonderfu!
Helpful and reassuring. Thanks
You all are doing awesome!!!!! Thank you!!!!!
I want to thank you sincerely not only for your fast response, but for also being my guide to discover were I truly want to be.
I was the Recruiter for my current company up until 2019 when I was promoted to be an Employee Relations Coordinator in training to work and train alongside the HR Director.
I knew minimum of the field, but I was so excited and ready to learn. (Becareful what you ask for.)
In the same week of my promotion ready to learn, the HR Director, HR Assistant, Benefits Manager jumped ships, without warning. I was left with a new internally promoted recruiter to train with no experience.
I attempted to keep the department afloat as we have other stores to keep running smoothly and did't want them to be penalized.
Rewind a bit further, a few months before they all left, I attended a Fred Pryor seminar and was present with the Help Desk Suites. It was love at first sight, that I came back to the office and asked the HR Director to approve. She was a bit hesitant, but when I told her I would purchase out of pocket because I soley believed it would be useful, she approved it. It was almost like her parting gift without me even knowing it.
Let me tell you, the Help Desk Delux and the podcasts Small business spoonfuls, (which I miss and hope they come back soon) has been my salvation. It has guided me to provide best case options. Our company went through a lot last year, or maybe it felt that way with me handling the problems.
One of the biggest saviors was advice with I-9's. We began our own audit and discovered a mess and started working on them to correct them. Needless to say months later, we had an ICE audit. I was so worried because I was unsure if we did the corrections correctly or not, but we had all I9's in place have not heard back from them over 7 months now.
I can not thank you enough Lisa, for letting me find my passion. I am studing to test for the PHR towards the end of the year, and I just wanted to thank you for being that guide I needed to find what I truly enjoy doing.
As usual your reply is very helpful. The level of appreciation I have for you and HelpDeskSuites is very high. As a small nonprofit school with many nuances being connected to the world of labor and its complexity through your team is incredibly valuable. Thank you.
Lisa is phenomenal! She always provides prompt responses with links for reference. Thank you!!
"Having a multitude of answers in one spot, I haven’t come across anything I wasn’t able to find."
I have only been a subscriber to the Help Desk Suites for a few weeks and already pleased with the investment and customer service you offer. The two times I have asked questions were each met with quicker responses than anticipated. Thank You!
Hello Lisa, You are an awesome instructor! I enjoyed your style and your knowledge has prepared me for my new role at my organization.
Very fast answers, all the forms you could ask for, and a great customer/HR staff to help. Thank you Help Desk and a special thanks to Lisa Smith!
Great help. Never a time that their response hasn’t been in a quick manner. Always available to help and get me the information needed.
I have been more than impressed with the help and knowledge I've received.....and in such a timely manner! It has given me the "ammo" needed to argue with management when a particular practice was in question. Worth every penny to invest in. I know you'll be just as happy as I am that you have placed your faith in Lisa. (Nice to have this "ace" in your pocket!)
"First things first. Thank you. After going to a Fred Pryor seminar, we purchased this set of programs to help get our business in order. We tried through the years to make things right, however, without a decent outline, it was a guessing game. That guessing game came to head around the first of the year when we were turned in by a disgruntled employee and had several agencies calling and harassing us. For months we struggled with finding the correct answers and eventually we did make it through the audits, but it was not fun. We found out that no matter how nice you are to your employees, they are happy to turn against you and use every advantage against us so we decided to protect ourselves and our livelihood. In the first 10 minutes of getting this setup, we have already gotten a Company manual, rules of engagement of an outline for protection of our company and our employees. Again, thank you!"
